I joined King's to study for a PhD in analytical chemistry. Foreseeing a future in industry, I wanted a programme of study that would equip me with skills that are required not only in the laboratory but also day to day life. Being part of the Forensic Science and Drug Monitoring Research Division (incorporating the world renowned Drug Control Centre) has provided me with some fantastic opportunities to enhance and develop these skills, opening up a variety of career opportunities.

I have always believed in Sir Francis Bacon's expression “Knowledge is power”. King's interprets this saying by making an effort to share the knowledge and promote excellence in teaching, learning and research. I am doing a PhD at the Drug Control Centre, which is the part of the Department of Forensic Science and Drug Monitoring. I was delighted to be awarded Overseas Research Award to fund my PhD and am grateful for the support from my supervisors whose rich experience and expertise in the doping control area is internationally recognised.

I have been interested in pharmaceutical research since undergraduate studies. So after obtaining my master's degree in China and feeling confident in myself, I have been determined to pursue my PhD study at King's. I thought the professors here make a great contribution to pharmaceutical sciences before I came - now this has been proven by the reality. I am very lucky that I have become a student at King's and sponsored by King's (KORS). During this process, the staff from here have helped me a lot and it makes everything go well. I should say thanks to them.


I am very happy that I am learning at King's. King's is very student-oriented. They help you resolve all the problems and make your life and study here not be disturbed. King's is a big family and I can make contact with students from all over the world. I enjoy the good relationship between my supervisor and me. She is kind and responsible and leads me to a higher research point. But it would not work if there were not such a good research setting at King's.


One more thing I have to mention is that once studying in London you will enjoy a different social life, seeing political figures, singers and royal members, visiting museums, galleries, concert halls, taking part in parties, parades, Olympic torch relay, raising money for charities and all kinds of volunteer work. You will benefit from not only studying at King's but also living in London. Once you have been here, you will never be ready to leave.

At King’s, I have received immense support from world-leading academics and an outstanding research environment which confirms King’s status as a centre of excellence. The strong links the College has with the pharmaceutical industry have also proven to be a great asset during my MSc degree, where I had the opportunity to undertake an industrial placement at the Laboratory of the Government Chemist LGC.



The wide range of transferable skills, knowledge and the intellectual challenge which I have gained will definitely be a valuable asset for my future career. Studying at King’s will definitely be a great experience and a real investment in your career. King’s will provide you with the perfect environment to develop your knowledge and skills you need for your future career.

My research with Dr Amobi has combined physiology and pharmacology to show how the propulsive function of the human sperm duct depends on its different muscle layers and their activation, presenting the opportunity to develop a new class of non-hormonal and fast-acting contraceptive pills for men. The resulting publicity reminded me that research is not just about test tubes. At its heart, it has been the glorious freedom to study and work at what I - or you - feel to be important. This will be true from day one of your postgraduate life: whilst lectures, seminars and staff will provide the essential building blocks the cement and final plan is yours.
